I used the idea of a book for my header since this challenge is going to be a journal of my life over the years.
I hope you enjoy viewing these pages of my life as they unfold. I know I will...

Page 272 - For Sale

I don't part with my camera gear very easily. Of all the things I have bought since I got into photography 2 years ago, the only thing I have sold is my very first 50mm f/1.8.

Since I just bought all my new studio lighting, it's time to let this little guy go :(

I have two SB900s so he doesn't get used anymore and needs a good home. I'm asking $160 so email me if you are interested.

Page 271 - Making Plans

As if I don't already have enough to do I am making plans to completely redo my son's room and my girls room!! Crazy I know, but they are going to look amazing!

Because of this and other family things going on, I am officially booked for the rest of October and December. Just a couple spots left in November so if you want pictures done, you better book soon!!

Page 270 - Today Needs To Go Away

Day 37 of my diet (which means 37 days without chocolate) AND PMSing - Stay out of my way if you don't want your head bit off. Just ask Barbie.

There is no better compliment I could receive from another photographer than to have them ask me to take their family pictures. Thanks Tara :)

Page 268 - One

One year olds can be one of the hardest ages to shoot.

These little ones are constantly moving around soaking up everything they see and touch. I'm just glad I get to be along for the ride, capturing the world through their eyes.

Page 267 - Headlights

Did a formal shoot tonight with one of my favorite couples ever :)

I've always wanted to try the headlight shots and they were the perfect ones to try it with.

Only problem, it killed my battery. As luck would have it, a good photographer friend, Luke Isley, just happened to be walking back to his car from his shoot to save me!! Thanks Luke, you are the best.

Page 266 - Loose Tooth

A couple of weeks ago Abby got her first loose tooth.

Today it fell out.

No! I want her to stay little with her cute baby teeth.

I forgot to bring my camera on my date with my hubs tonight so I had to take one with my cell phone. Ryan loves sushi and is trying to get me to like it too. Yuck :{

Page 258 - My Street

Completely spaced taking my picture today so I went outside, put my camera down in the middle of the street, and took a picture.

Boring I know, but at least the 365 dream is still alive!!

Page 257 - Fall Cleaning??

Most people get their Spring cleaning done in the Spring. I wait until the fall.

Cleaned out the garage and had to take a bunch of pictures of stuff I need to sell on KSL.

This snow blower went the day I listed it. Must have been asking too little. Oh well, at least it's gone!!

Page 256 - Halo

Something you may not know about me??

I am a huge gamer. I LOVE video games and get addicted very easily. When my hubby and I were first married we'd spend hours on end playing.

Unfortunately, the last couple of years have become so busy that the games have taken a back seat and I miss them sometimes.

Halo Reach just came out and we got it today. My son of course is playing right now and I wish I could be playing with him. I've beat Halos 1,2, and 3 so I'd love to play this new one but work must come first. Oh well, maybe someday.

Just in case you are wondering, my all time favorite video game is Oblivion. It's the best :)

Page 255 - Litlle Harpist

Today was my 6 year old's first harp lesson. She has always wanted to learn and thanks to one of my bride's I'll be shooting next year, she now has a teacher.


She is quite the natural and I'm soooooo excited not only for the music that will fill my home, but the AWESOME future pictures I get to take!!!

Page 253 - Never Forget

I'll never forget September 11. Not just because of the lives lost in 2001, but also because of the lives that were created because my parents were married on this day 45 years ago.

Something tells me this little guy will never have a shortage of those who love him.

Page 251 - Green

Drove to Idaho to help one of my best friends (who is more like my sister) that just had baby #6 today.

She just built a new house and I am having serious jealousy issues and took tons of pictures for my wish list - like her TWO dishwashers!!!!

Page 250 - $20,000 cash

Today we finally bought me a car. We got an amazing deal on it and it's exactly what I wanted (even though the color isn't what I wanted, it's a color I don't mind) - a 2004 Infinity QX56 with only 56,000 miles on it and fully loaded.

We bought my hubby's car 3 years ago and paid cash for it. We swore we would never buy another car unless we could pay cash for it.

Here it is, all cash and car #2 paid for. What an amazing feeling :)

The car still needs to be detailed so as soon as that is done I'll take pics of it and post them :) Oh, and just wait until you see my personalized license plate!!!

Page 249 - New Room

I am soooo excited for this new picture I bought for my girl's room. Now I just gotta find fabric and sew new duvet covers, pillows, curtains, outfits for pictures of the girls to put on the walls and paint for some furniture. At least the most important part is bought right?

As if I already don't have enough on my plate as it is. SIGH.


(BTW, happy 2 year anniversary to me!! Today marks exactly 2 years since I bought my first DSLR and entered this wonderful world of photography!)

Page 248 - Sewing Projects

I've been doing a lot of sewing projects lately so my huge cutting mat has become a permanent part of my floor.

Page 247 - LookieLoo

My mom saw my new logo and said the sunglasses look just like the pair she wore as a teenager! They came to visit tonight and she brought me them to give to me since she has saved them all these years.

Of course I had to get a picture of her wearing them in typical Lookie Loo fashion!!

Page 246 - Temple

I shot some formals at Salt Lake temple today and my hubby decided to bring the kids to walk around temple square.

I was shooting my couple by the reflection pond and looked up to see these cute faces watching me.
Love.
